If you are a collector some small items then you will need furniture like a curio box. The curio box furniture is typically a small display for hanging on a wall or standing on a table, with many little compartments for organizing and displaying one’s small knick-knacks. It is similar to a shadow-box, a glass-fronted box-like frame for displaying small items, but a curio box will usually not be found with a glass front. Curio boxes can be found to hold four items or to handle the most extensive collection. A free standing curio box shaped like an old carriage clock would find a suitable home on a mantlepiece above your fireplace. A curio box with a heavy gilt frame and a picture-hanger back can take the place of a painting above your sofa or on the landing of your staircase.
If you can’t find a curio box furniture to suit either a very extensive collection or a collection of unusually shaped items, such as miniature violins, visit your local home supply store and find the materials and know-how to make your own. You can make the curio box as deep or shallow as the items require, and it can be painted to match any décor or even set within a frame.
